During the ending month of 2019, the Japanese game designer Goichi Suda, alias Suda51, announced the horror game Hotel Barcelona. After the project had recently become very quiet, those responsible gave us a new sign of life.
Hotel Barcelona is still in development
At the end of 2019, it was announced that the two well-known Japanese game designers Goichi “Suda51” Suda and Hidetaka “Swery 65” Suehiro are working on a new project. This should be called Hotel Barcelona and see itself as an unusual horror adventure.
As it was said at the beginning of last year, the release of the title was scheduled for 2021. In the meantime, almost half of the year has passed and there is still a lack of tangible information or even the first game trailers of the title.
We can therefore assume that the publication will not be shown this year. But this could soon change, as Goichi Suda confirmed in a current question-and-answer session that Hotel Barcelona is still in development. Unfortunately, it is still unclear when the official presentation of the project can be expected.
“I contact SWERY65 at least once every 2 to 3 months, even during COVID, about how to make Hotel Barcelona happen. It really depends on the timing, since it gets heavily influenced on the work I’m doing at that period,” Suda51 said in a Reddit AMA.
While Suda is currently working on No More Heroes 3, which should be released in August 2021, Suehiro published Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise last year, which was criticized mainly because of its mixed performance and bugs.
